“It wasn’t as bad as I had thought it would be. New York, for example, had such devastation.”

Michele Jensen,
10th and Cross streets

 

 

 

 

“I’m just happy nobody got hurt. Property, you can fix. Lives, you can’t.”

Gerri Matkowski,
Third and Roseberry streets

 

 

 

 

 

“It was a smart move for the City to shut down and, fortunately, I’ve not heard from anyone saying they experienced huge losses.”

Steve Falkowski,
1700 block of South Iseminger Street

 

 

 

 

“I’m thankful I live in Philly and not New York City or down the Shore. For what we had, the city did pretty well.”

Steve Crutchfield,
Front and Titan streets
